Summer, West Virginia style.

This is what summer has looked like so far...Not the most exciting, but we're gettin' the hang of this new place.

We do a lot of sleeping and napping...whether or not its actually in our bed is apparently up for debate. Sleeping in a big boy bed is hard sometimes...

" Ummmm....Hello mini Kimball when did you shrink into this tiny person?"..oh wait it's just Aiden.

We've also done a LOT of this once we found the library and started their summer reading program.

FHE we set out pillows and blankets on the patio and had pizza and watched "The Prince of Egypt"

And we've done even more of this....Mya is doing flips from one pool to the next, always with her trusty "air suit" which she frequently comes to me and says "Mom I have a wedgie"...lovely.

We've gone to a few city events, farmer's markets, pick your own blueberries, annual weiner dog races (post to come dont you worry), taken in the beautiful country, gone on walking trails, gone to a few different parks, Kimball wants to go take a tour of the nuclear plant down the road.
All in all its pretty quiet, but we're together and that will always be our favorite place to be.

The Big Day

I know its a little overdue but here are pictures from our big day (which I shamelessly stole from other people because I was too frantic to take any good know who you are, thanks!). Kimball's graduating class got a yearbook where each student had a dedicatory page which Kimball told me I could upload pictures to (which I did), he however didn't mention we could submit a little written sentiment to include, so I'll share it with the world through this forum at the very least.

My deareast Kimball, We have waited for this day for so long, and I couldn't be prouder of you. I'm so happy our children will have you to look up to as an example of someone who is hardworking, diligent, faithful, smart, and good. I'm confident these attributes will help you be a wonderful physician and surgeon. Thank you for putting us first. In the words of another kind of Doctor, "...And will you succeed? Yes! You will indeed! 98 and 3/4% guaranteed. You're off to Great Places! Today is your day! You're mountain is waiting. So..get on your way!". Love you. Holly

The After Party!

Once again we were overwhelmed by the love and support of our family and friends. We love you all and couldn't have done this without you. Starting out on this new adventure seems much easier knowing we have you guys in our corner. We'll always be grateful.
